So to make a long story short, I forgot to collect the chicken eggs because I was house-sitting and my hen decided to go broody. We are at about 17-18 days gestation and at first, my mother was open to letting me keep the chicks but then today she pulled me aside and informed me that "I had to find them new homes". Chickens are my favorite animal and I pay for everything when it comes to them. I'm hoping once my mom sees them maybe she will grow attached to them but I don't know D: Any advice into convincing one to allow you to keep your chickens? I take care of everything for them and right now, excluding the eggs my hen is sitting on, I only have a rooster and two hens. Plenty of land, plenty of room in the coop. I don't want to give up my babies </3 I worry that someone will eat them or something.
